Day 4 -Tundra Wilderness Tour -Pt. 2

may 28th - Denali

notice the road ( or the lack there of ) .. thats one of the things that makes Denali so magical.(.1 road about 60 miles long, a portion of it paved) only open a few months out of the year and not open for the general population - tour groups only..its a hikers paradise really. im thrilled i got to see and experience a part of it.

i should add that before we started the Tundra Tour, waking up about 4:30 am - mom says to me " if we survive this, we are going to The Bahamas afterwards" .. hahaha..few days in a row of waking up very early had us a bit nuts .. but we all agreed - SO WORTH IT.






















yup - a bear!















love these guys.









sorry i didn't get picture of the most wonderful and enthusiastic tour guide ever, John Miller. - what a great day he gave us. Thank you John!!











So after our 6+ hour Wilderness Tour - i went rafting !!!!... it was thrilling and scary and so glad I did it .....didn't have a chance to bring the GoPro ( sigh ) - but had to buy this pic - great way to see the canyons and more wildlife and Tour Guide Pete was incredible!

















we ended the day with some great Alaskan Beer and delish Pizza - outside, 70 degrees, 8pm at night, bright sun - another great day.
